Shaq: 'I've still got 3.7 years left'

Speaking after the Celtics' 94-85 Game 6, series-clinching win over the Cavaliers, Cleveland center Shaquille O'Neal said that he has no plans to retire.

 

"Of course," said the 38-year-old O'Neal when asked if he plans on continuing his playing career. "I've missed 360 games due to injury in my career, so by my calculation I've still got 3.7 years left which means I'm going to play until I'm 41. I've been in the league 17 years, but I've missed a lot of games, so I'm still feeling good and I still feel like I can play this game."

 

In his team's season-ending loss, O'Neal scored 11 points while grabbing four rebounds in 24 minutes. In a departure from the Cavs' approach in previous games, O'Neal began the game guarding Celtics forward Kevin Garnett.

 

"Obviously we're all disappointed," he said, "but as a person and a professional I did everything they asked me to do....

Celts crown King James, send Cavs packing

Kevin Garnett hit his first four shots and fired up the crowd late with a spectacular tomahawk one-handed jam as the Celtics beat the Cavaliers, 94-85, on Thursday night at TD Garden to capture the Eastern Conference semifinal series, 4-2. Garnett finished with 22 points on 11-of-19 shooting and added 12 rebounds.

 

Rajon Rondo added 21 points and 12 assists for the Celtics, who advance to the Eastern Conference finals and will play Game 1 in Orlando on Sunday afternoon. 

 

With the sellout crowd chanting "New York Knicks" at him all night, potential free agent LeBron James recorded a triple-double with 27 points, 19 rebounds and 10 assists. Mo Willliams had 22 points for the Cavaliers, who finished with the best record in the NBA for the second straight season but again failed to reach the NBA Finals.

Cameron goes hitless in latest rehab start

Playing in his third rehab game with the Pawtucket Red Sox, outfielder Mike Cameron went 0-for-2 with a run and RBI while also drawing a walk. Cameron, who is recovering from an abdominal strain, grounded out to third in his first at-bat, walked in his second, and notched a sacrifice fly in the fourth inning. Cameron, who was serving as the PawSox' designated hitter, flew out to left field in his final at-bat. Cameron is now 2-for-9 with a pair of strikeouts and three walks in three rehab games.

Ainge: Both teams 'desperate'

Celtics president Danny Ainge joined The Big Show Thursday evening, hours before tipoff for Game 6 between the Celtics and Cavaliers. "Both teams are very desperate to win this game tonight, for obvious reasons," Ainge said. "I think that’s why it will be a good game."

 

Added Ainge: "I would be shocked if it was going to be any sort of blowout like we’ve had in a couple of games in the series. I expect both teams to be ready, they know what they’re doing, they kind of know the strengths and weaknesses, and I’d be shocked if it wasn’t a close game."

 

Ainge said he's disappointed with the amount of criticism heaped on LeBron James following his Game 5 struggles. "It’s just a sign of the times," Aigne said. "There are so many panel shows and talk and they have to have something to talk about. I mean, here is a guy that’s a great player and...

LeBron: Out to ‘prove our doubters wrong’

LeBron James says he has already put his poor performance from Game 5 behind him and is focused on coming out aggressive in as the Cavaliers face elimination against the Celtics.

 

“It’s always about what have you done for me lately,” he said of the criticism prior Game 6. “I understand that and we understand that, so we’ve got to our best to go out there and prove our doubters wrong.”

 

James believes the Cavaliers can beat the Celtics if they find their shots and get one another open looks. Down 3-2, their gameplan is clear.

 

“We’re looking to win. That’s our only agenda, that’s the only thing we have to this point,” he said. “We’re on the brink of elimination so to me it’s all about aggression, trying to be aggressive, and putting our team in the position to win this game.”
